High School Sports DURHAM Southern Durham football coach Darius Robinson took in a home basketball game four winters ago. The 2018-19 Spartans were led that season by Jayvis Harvey, now a 6-foot-5 guard at Tennessee Tech. But before the tipoff, Robinson was visited by Harvey's mother, Samiyyah Hargrave.
